Class in the arts and cultural sector

Monday 18 November 2019

Academics and policy makers across the sector have been wrestling with issues regarding how to map class engagement, how to talk about class in a constructive way and how to bring class into the diversity agenda. 
Arts Professional recently published these two articles on the subject, providing an interesting overview and way into the debate.
